50 SECTION 7. That Section 67-6201, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
51 amended to read as follows:
1 67-6201. PURPOSE. It is hereby declared:
2 (a) That within the state there is a shortage of safe or sanitary dwell-
3 ing accommodations available which persons of low incomes can afford and that
4 such persons are forced to occupy overcrowded and congested dwelling accommo-
5 dations; that the aforesaid conditions cause an increase in and spread of dis-
6 ease and crime, and constitute a menace to the health, safety, morals and wel-
7 fare of the residents of the state and impair economic values; that these con-
8 ditions necessitate excessive and disproportionate expenditures of public
9 funds for crime prevention and punishment, public health and safety, fire and
10 accident protection, and other public services and facilities.
11 (b) That private enterprise has not been able to provide, without assis-
12 tance, an adequate supply of safe and sanitary dwellings at prices or rents
13 which persons and families of low income can afford, or to achieve rehabilita-
14 tion of much of the present low-income housing. It is imperative that the sup-
15 ply of housing for persons and families of low income be increased and that
16 coordination and cooperation among private enterprise, state and local govern-
17 ment be encouraged to sponsor, build and rehabilitate residential housing for
18 such persons and families.
19 (c) That the clearance, replanning and reconstruction of the areas in
20 which unsanitary or unsafe housing conditions exist, and the providing of safe
21 and sanitary dwelling accommodations for persons of low incomes (which
22 dwelling-accommodations need not be solely for persons of low incomes in order
23 to avoid concentrations of such persons in specific localities), are public
24 uses, and uses and purposes for which public money may be spent and private
25 property acquired, and are governmental functions.
26 (d) It is also declared and the legislature hereby finds that charitable,
27 educational, human service, cultural and other purposes pursued by nonprofit
28 corporations are important public functions and public purposes that should be
29 encouraged and that financing of nonprofit facilities for these purposes
30 should be encouraged, without using state funds or lending the credit of the
31 state, through the issuance of nonrecourse revenue bonds and the lending of
32 the proceeds thereof to nonprofit corporations to promote their purposes.
33 (e) It is further declared that in this state:
34 (1) There exists an inadequate supply of funds at interest rates suffi-
35 ciently low to enable persons engaged in agriculture in this state, par-
36 ticularly beginning farmers and ranchers, to pursue agricultural opera-
37 tions at present levels;
38 (2) That such inability to pursue agricultural operations lessens reduces
39 the supply of agricultural commodities available to fulfill the needs of
40 the citizens of this state;
41 (3) That such inability to continue operations decreases available
42 employment in the agricultural sector of the state and results in unem-
43 ployment and its attendant problems;
44 (4) That such conditions prevent the acquisition of an adequate capital
45 stock of farm and ranch equipment and machinery, therefore impairing the
46 productivity of agricultural land;
47 (5) That such conditions are conducive to consolidation of acreage of
48 agricultural land with fewer individuals living and farming and ranching
49 on the traditional family farm and ranch;
50 (6) That these conditions result in a loss in population, unemployment
51 and movement of persons from rural to urban areas accompanied by added
52 costs to communities for creation of new public facilities and services;
53 (7) That there have been recurrent shortages of funds from private market
54 sources at reasonable rates of interest;
55 (8) That these shortages have made the sale and purchase of agricultural
1 land to beginning farmers and ranchers a virtual impossibility in many
2 parts of the state;
3 (9) That the ordinary operations of private enterprise have not in the
4 past corrected these conditions; and
5 (10) That a stable supply of adequate funds for agricultural financing is
6 required to encourage beginning farmers and ranchers in an orderly and
7 sustained manner and to reduce the problems described herein.
8 (f) It is hereby further declared that:
9 (1) The growth of the economy of this state has prompted new and ever-
10 increasing uses of public highways, roads, and other transportation infra-
11 structure, and the existing transportation infrastructure of this state
12 cannot adequately accommodate such greatly increased uses;
13 (2) One of the major concerns of the citizens of this state is the abil-
14 ity of the state to address the long-term transportation infrastructure
15 needs of this state that are critical to the continued growth of the
16 state's economy and the maintenance of citizens' quality of life;
17 (3) Utilizing bonds or notes to finance projects for transportation in-
18 frastructure results in significant cost savings to the state, since such
19 transportation projects can be completed at present day costs and at an
20 accelerated pace, but such bonds and notes need to be issued promptly in
21 order to realize these cost savings; and
22 (4) It is reasonable and necessary to utilize such bonds or notes for the
23 financing of transportation projects.
24 (g) It is hereby further declared that all of the foregoing are public
25 purposes and uses for which public moneys may be borrowed, expended or granted
26 and that such activities are governmental functions and serve a public purpose
27 in improving or otherwise benefiting the people of this state; that the neces-
28 sity of enacting the provisions hereinafter set forth is in the public inter-
29 est and is hereby so declared as a matter of express legislative determina-

47 this act.
48 SECTION 12. An emergency existing therefor, which emergency is hereby
49 declared to exist, this act shall be in full force and effect on and after its
50 passage and approval.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation authorizes the Idaho Transportation Board to use
federal-aid highway funds to pay the principal, interest, and
other debt service costs incurred from bonds issued by the State
to finance a specified list of eligible highway projects. The
Board may select and designate specific transportation projects
to be funded with bond proceeds from the following list of
ROUTE PROJECT DESCRIPTION
US-95 SH-1 - CANADIAN BORDER
US-95 GARWOOD - SAGLE
US-95 WORLEY - SETTERS
US-95 THORN CREEK - MOSCOW
US-95 SMOKEY BOULDER - HAZARD CREEK
SH-16 EXT SOUTH EMMETT - MESA (AND ADD A CONNECTION TO SH-55)
SH-16 EXT I-84 - SOUTH EMMETT
I-84 CALDWELL - MERIDIAN
I-84 ORCHARD - ISAACS CANYON
US-93 TWIN FALLS - ALTERNATE RTE. & NEW SNAKE RIVER CROSSING
SH-75 TIMMERMAN - KETCHUM
US-20 ST. ANTHONY - ASHTON
US-30 MCCAMMON - SODA SPRINGS
A 1995 federal law allows states to use their apportioned federal-aid
funds as a debt-financing instrument known as "GARVEE" (Grant
Anticipation Revenue Vehicle) Bonds.
The average term of most bonds would likely be eighteen years.
Presently, Idaho receives approximately $220 million a year from
federal fuel tax revenues.
This legislation authorizes the Idaho Housing Finance Association
(IHFA) to issue GARVEE bonds then approved by the Board of
Transportation. IHFA would manage all aspects of the issuance and
servicing of the bonds. This legislation would amend the IHFA
enabling statute to authorize the issuance of GARVEE bonds.
Prior to entering into agreements to issue bonds, the Idaho
Transportation Department, as part of its annual budget request,
would be required to request legislative approval for each specific
bonding issuance as a separate item in its annual budget request.
This legislation increases no taxes. It is anticipated that the debt
bond service would require the dedication of approximately 29 to 32
percent of the department's total annual budget in the peak year of
debt service. The legislation could have a significant positive
effect on economic development that could result in increased tax
revenues to the State from an improved economy. Additionally, bond
interest costs would be more than offset by the reduced cost of
corridor right-of-way acquisition and construction. Delaying
construction of needed road infrastructure projects would result in
substantially higher project costs, due to inflation of construction
costs over time. Exact cost savings are dependent on the specific
timing of individual projects.
